7 Why are you using fdisk on a logical volume? To my knowledge (which of
8 course may be outdated/wrong) an LV doesn't contain a partition table so
9 looking for it with fdisk -l shouldn't give you any valid data. Use lvs
10 or lvdisplay instead. If you wish to manipulate the underlying partition
11 table (the "physical volumes") then you can use fdisk...
